ESPN Sorry for “Chink In The Armor” Jeremy Lin Headline

ESPN has apologized for a racially insensitive headline displayed on their ESPN mobile site about Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin.

“Last night, ESPN.com’s mobile web site posted an offensive headline referencing Jeremy Lin at 2:30 am. The headline was removed at 3:05 am. We are conducting a complete review of our cross-platform editorial procedures and are determining appropriate disciplinary action to ensure this does not happen again. We regret and apologize for this mistake.”

I mean, they have a point: 9 turnovers is A LOT.

All kidding aside, ESPN is clearly wayyyyy out of line here and someone will be fired over this.

What I’m most surprised about though is that the New York Post didn’t come up with it first.
